A huge thank you to everybody involved for making Stop Cyberbullying Day 2017 the loudest one yet! This year, organizations, influencers, brands and individuals from all over the world came together by celebrating and promoting an inclusive and diverse internet – free from fear, abuse and harassment.
To kickstart Stop Cyberbullying Day, we had none other than the Star Trek legend himself, William Shatner, to boldly take us where we’d never gone before.
Throughout the day, Cybersmile Ambassadors and supporters from all walks of life took part in sharing their positive messages and personal stories to encourage a more diverse and inclusive internet.
“We are delighted with the way the day has gone. It has been a tremendous success and we are grateful for all the support we’ve had behind-the-scenes leading up to the day itself.”
Dan Raisbeck, Co-Founder, The Cybersmile Foundation
As a Stop Cyberbullying Day first, we launched a Public Service Announcement for the day with a host of celebrities, influencers and public figures from around the world to promote a diverse internet, urging people to celebrate all that is great about the internet.
Stop Cyberbullying Day 2017 PSA
Among the day’s activities included a special contest giveaway with Ubisoft, a t-shirt giveaway with Cybersmile Diversity Ambassador Normani Kordei, and the release of our international survey which asked 50,000 participants across the U.K. and U.S. questions regarding exposure to online bullying, abuse and harassment.
Stop Cyberbullying Day also connected with people simultaneously across 4 platforms including Twitter, Instagram, Facebook and Youtube; bringing together people to share their positive messages and videos using the hashtag #STOPCYBERBULLYINGDAY.
